DTI minister Stephen Byers has launched a new research group to tackle CO2 emissions from buildings. The partnership - called the Integration of New and Renewable Energy in Buildings (INREB) - is to get a slice of £18 million the government has made available for a range of new research projects.

The group includes researchers from the universities of Loughborough, De Montfort, Nottingham and Ulster, as well as the Building Research Establishment. Building heating systems account for 45 per cent of all UK CO2 emissions.
